Lesse...I make that he picked up 13 points. That'd mean he picked up a 4th on GC, or a combination of good results on stages.

Good stuff man

Congrats.

There is no power meter, training plan or magic pill that will make you improve faster than racing with the P/1/2s every weekend.

Good luck.

I was informed by the upgrade official that the 5 points I thought I earned from an 11th place GC finish in an omnium earlier in the year don't count. Still, that leaves me with 25 points. Hopefully he approves my upgrade anyway. If not, I'll get it soon.

Green Mountain is going to be fun as a 2
